Team

Bridging traditional finance and new digital economy requires a synergy of interdisciplinary expertise.

Our team is a rare example of such synergy that is crucial for building an asset tokenization platform.

We have diverse experience and a proven track of record in alternative investment, algorithmic trading, blockchain, software development, security, and law.

Crypto

A solid educational background in mathematics provides our founders with a deep understanding of the technology behind blockchain, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, and trading software.

We witnessed the origins of cryptocurrencies and started exploring their potential at the earliest stage of the market development, pioneering legally compliant alternative investment fund structures.

STASIS CEO Gregory Klumov and CTO Anatoliy Knyazev are renowned cryptocurrency visionaries and blockchain experts. In 2012, we founded the world’s first cryptocurrency hedge fund Bitcoin Fund and made significant proprietary investments.

A year later, Bitcoin Fund had become the world’s most profitable hedge fund in history, having shown a record profitability of 4,847% year-on-year.

Finance & investment

Our team members have mastered the strategies and tactics of conventional finance, employing thorough research of the global commodities market back in 2008. We have closed multi-million dollar transactions with listed and private equity commodity producers. For nearly 15 years, we have been successfully investing in capex and opex ventures on different stages and benefited from a number of prolific exits.

Aside from consolidation of the regulated trading infrastructure on the national level, several of our team members succeeded in global operations including developing an international DMA brokerage with proprietary HFT-compatible software and the first regulated OTC derivatives-focused UCITS fund based in Ireland.

The alternative asset management track record of a member of our team includes a fund of funds and venture capital allocations.

IT

Of the many areas of our team's technological expertise, the most relevant for virtual finance are high-frequency trading bots, mining and network services (including building high-capacity server infrastructures).

Our CEO has run an ISP business, and our key partner Exante develops the proprietary liquid cooled technology of mining with a cloud mining service under the brand Comino.

Exante, an international online brokerage integrated with the world’s top exchanges and featuring a homegrown trading terminal are other examples of our team’s fintech achievements.

Regulatory

STASIS founders have developed derivative-based alternative investment strategies as strictly regulated products within rigorous legal frameworks.

Throughout our business history, they have put forth significant effort to ensuring that investment strategies meet numerous requirements that protect the safety of individual investments in a collective investment product. STASIS partners enable clients from various jurisdictions to securely access over 50 markets from a single desk.
